Angelino presents at a disability conference in Melbourne

Angelino is Palms’ latest Reverse Immersion participant. Here he explains what that involves and how it will benefit him and Ahisaun Foundation where he works in Timor-Leste.


As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and financial speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems or, for that matter, to any problems. Inequality is the root of social ills. - Pope Francis (Joy of the Gospel 202)
